(Spouted) Beehive Tea Cozy

from Dawn Brocco

(Spouted) Beehive Tea Cozy
(Spouted) Beehive Tea Cozy
(Spouted) Beehive Tea Cozy

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit, purl, inc, dec, wrap and turn, ch, sc

Pattern Description:

This revised pattern has spout and handle openings for a cozy which can remain on the teapot, whilst pouring.

Adding openings also allowed for the addition of a 3-cup teapot size. The original unspouted pattern is also included - your choice!

This is a good advanced beginner project, as, although the fabric has knit and purl sections, the entire piece is worked in Stockinette, made possible by wrapping the first stitch of the new section, then turning the work, to continue in Stockinette.

Honey bee buttons embellish the cozies.


14 sts and 24 rows = 4" (10 cm) over Stockinette stitch with size 10 ndls or size to give gauge.

  • Circumference: 18 / 19 / 20"

  • 3-cup cozy: 2 skeins #Y1044 Butterscotch. It uses just a few yards from the 2nd skein, 2 skeins yarn will make both the 2 and 3 cup cozies.
